Global Geothermal Energy Summit 2020

Date: 17th June 2020 - 18th June 2020 Location: Florence - Italy

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 23 April 2020, 09:00

ACI’s Global Geothermal Energy Summit in Florence, Italy, originally scheduled to take place on 17-18 June, has been postponed. The conference will be rescheduled for this autumn and we will confirm the exact dates shortly. We are currently in the process of calling and emailing all registered attendees. If you have any questions please contact one of the event team on the details tab below.


Following the success from last year’s summit in Amsterdam, ACI is very excited to take the 7th edition of our Global Geothermal Energy Summit to the birth place of Geo thermal energy production – Tuscany, Italy.

With Geo thermal energy production being one of the lowest forms of CO2 producing energy sources, its development & worldwide deployment is vital in the reduction in worldwide targets for CO2 reduction.

The two day event will provide key insights into the opportunities, challenges, global trends and policies, through expert led case study presentations, interactive sessions and round table discussions giving practical examples of planning, financing & technological strategies shaping the future of Geo thermal energy production whilst networking with industry peers from across the geothermal power value chain.

Last edition of the conference was held in Amsterdam. More Info here >> Global Geothermal Summit 2018

Site Visit – Enel Green Power

During the afternoon of 16th June 2020, a limited number  of conference delegates will receive a unique opportunity to visit: Enel Green Power’s world’s first biomass plant used to heat geothermal steam at the Cornia 2 geothermal power plant, which is located in Castelnuovo Val di Cecina in Tuscany. 

Italy as a whole, & the Tuscany Region in particular, present abundant energy resources due to the particular geological and geothermal   conditions of the territory. The new facility was built next to the existing 13-MW Cornia 2 geothermal power plant & is expected to increase the latter’s output by more than 30 GWh annually. The newly-installed power station uses virgin forest   biomass to heat steam from an initial temperature of 150-160 degrees Celsius to 370-380 degrees Celsius. This boosts net electricity production capacity because of the increased enthalpy of the steam & the improved efficiency of the cycle.

There is no extra charge to join the site visit, although places are limited and allocated on first come first served basis. Secure your place today to avoid disappointment…
